Nevada County is leading to the left in the latest election, though YubaNet estimates an estimated 17,000 ballots have yet to be counted. The Elections Office has 30 days to count the remaining absentee ballots.
Here’s the latest, based on the County’s election night results:
•Hillary Clinton is beating Donald Trump for President
•Kamala Harris is beating Loretta Sanchez for the California Senate
•Doug LaMalfa holds a narrow lead over Jim Reed (50.56 percent vs. 49.44 percent) for Congress
•Robert Derlet is beating Tom McClintock for Congress — handily.
•Republicans Ted Gaines and Brian Dahle are winning their state race
•The marijuana initiative Prop. 64 is winning.
I expect the trend to continue. Democrat Heidi Hall is going to be the county supervisor for District 1.
